§ 32. Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
asked the Prime Minister whether the concession for the further development of the Mosul 1511 and South Kurdistan oil fields has been granted to the Anglo-Persian Oil Company; and, if so, on what terms?
§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
Can the right hon. Gentleman say when this question is likely to be decided as to who is to develop these oilfields?
§ The PRIME MINISTER
First of all, we have to establish an Arab authority, and it will then be for them, on the advice of the Mandatory, to choose their own method of developing the oil fields.
